For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship.
Theres an old song my mom use to sing growing up that stuck with me through the ages that even to today reminds me How God in His mercy has scooped me up and made me part of His family ...
I'm so glad I'm a part
of the family of God-
I've been washed in the fountain,
cleansed by His blood!
Joint heirs with Jesus
as we travel this sod,
For I'm part of the family,
the family of God.
(2) From the door of an orphanage
to the house of the King-
No longer an outcast,
a new song I sing;
From rags unto riches,
from the weak to the strong,
I'm not worthy to be here,
But, praise God, I belong!
When you don’t know who you are, you will accept the identity whispered in your ear from your enemies and others claim you to be.
This world gives us so many labels. It tries to attach these labels to us, and in many ways, we accept them. These labels are tied to our sin, or economic status, our upbringing. On the other hand, God’s word gives us a new identity. Our true identity in Christ.
It is so important to meditate on the Word of God and really embrace who he says you are! When we embrace the truth of our identity in Christ we can walk confidently in the purpose and plans that God has for us. Because we accept who he says we are, we can accept what he says we can do.
How the devil whispers so often we are alone , not cared for , forgotten , and rejected but I find comfort in His sayings because the Bible says He is a liar so that means if all he does is lie than the truth is " I'm not alone , Jesus Loves me , He sees me and I am accepted " and in that we can rejoice because we are free to be all God has called us to be . We can live free as called by God knowing He is our father and He has given us an incredible family to enjoy here on earth anf for evermore !!! PraiseGod

It is so true that we get cut up believing what the enemy through at us. I know for myself if I don't bring my thoughts captive right away to the obedience of God I am miserable for a bit. Soon I do it that change everything. I am learning to do it quicker that I will not be so miserable too long. Thank you Doug i was needed this. 🙂
